@mcglalala:I felt the same way, I freaked out for two months after buying my dress.  I saw amazing dresses on here and was so sure I made a mistake and needed to get a new dress.  I made an appointment for the salon I purchased from for last Tuesday.  I went in and they had my dress I bought pulled but I put it on the last hook in the dressing room and went around the shop and pulled every other dress I thought I would love.  I tried all of those dresses on and absolutely nothing stood out to me and I had something I disliked about all of them.  I put my dress on and realized it was the one I truly wanted.  So my suggestion, find a salon with one in your size range and go try it on.  Definitely take your time, have them give you a veil, a petticoat or hoop, anything that will give you an idea of how you’ll look on your wedding day.

I had dress regret, but I went back and tried the sample on again and it helped me out a lot. Also spending more money on another dress is just crazy to me. My mom already put down 600 on one dress there is no way I could say I wanted a new one!

I just bought my dress last week and I’ve been freaking out ever since. The idea of spending all that money without any ability to change your mind puts added pressure on us and I think that affects our thinking.

There is a reason that I (and you) choose the dress in the first place. I went back this past Saturday and tried on the dress again and got all those magical feeling back.

While I am still feeling a bit strange after seeing all these gorgeous dresses I don’t regret my dress choice, I just know that there are millions of lovely dresses out there and I have the pleasure of wearing one of them.
